Tae Kwon Do
Korean Martial art

Tae – to strike with foot
Kwon – to strike with fist
Do - way of life

Taekwondo may be loosely translated as “the way of the foot and the hand”. It is known for its emphasis on high kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. Practitioners will learn how to execute proper kicks and will learn what is called forms (sometimes it’s called Hyung or Poomsae) which combine various kicking, punching and blocking techniques to represent fighting an opponent. The forms are designed to help students to practice: focus, accuracy, direction, strengthening ones muscles, proper breathing techniques to understand power. Sometimes the forms could be very meditative. And then there is sparring, we make sure that students show maximum control when we spar not to injure ones partner. Sparring is not just about kicking and punching, but it’s to teach students to learn how to make quick and right decisions.
